Income tax filing when exempt from Dutch income tax
If you are exempt from Dutch income tax, for instance because you work for an international treaty organization or a diplomatic mission, you may still need to declare your worldwide income. For instance, this is the case if you received a Dutch childcare allowance.
If the Dutch tax office asks you to report your income, you are still required to do this. Your income tax exempt status will not be affected. If you have not received an invitation to file your income tax, you may still be required to declare your income to the Dutch tax office. This could be the case if you received an allowance based on your actual (world) income for the tax year (which is the same as a calendar year). You will receive a form from the Dutch tax office to declare your world income or your ‘not in the Netherlands taxed income’ (NiNBI).No action is required from you until you receive an invitation from the Dutch tax office.
When to file your U.S. taxes
The regular tax filing due date is 15 April. U.S. citizens and resident foreigners living outside the U.S. receive an automatic extension of 2 months for their tax filing due date to 15 June. Note that you are required to pay any tax due by 15 April regardless. Interest charges apply on tax payments due after 15 April.
You can request an additional 6 month extension to file your U.S. taxes by 15 October. To obtain the 6 month extension, file Form 4868 or ask a tax professional such as Blue Umbrella to help. Note that you need to pay your (provisional) taxes by 15 April to avoid interest charges.
You normally cannot get an extension of more than 6 months. However, if you are outside the United States and meet certain requirements, you may be able to get a longer extension.
